Tom's Title Tiers #3
The Golden State Warriors' X Factor looms large across the NBA.
It’s Monday! That means it’s time for another Tom’s Title Tiers.
Victor Wembanyama highlights have flooded the timeline. Can he propel the Spurs into the title picture now? OK, I’m not there. Yet. If you can’t get enough of Crown Vic, read my piece on him and the positional revolution last week.
As a reminder: This is my subjective list based largely on objective data. This is not a pure, analytical ranking. You’re here because you want to know what I think, to get inside my brain a little bit. Consider this a weekly report of what I see on film; what I glean from the numbers; what I hear on the phone; what I read in the news; what I feel.
I’m also going to write about one team each week.
This week’s featured contender: the Golden State Warriors.
I’ll go a little deeper later, but here’s a quick rundown of each tier.
Tom’s Title Tiers
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ This is a complete team, no notes.
⭐⭐⭐⭐ Just missing that one thing.
⭐⭐⭐ One move away from being one move away.
⭐⭐ So much has to break right.
⭐ Sooo you’re saying there’s a chance.
So, where do I put Golden State and the rest of the contenders? And which team got demoted to one-star contender status this week?
Let’s find out.
